Hertl just dominated Finland. He and Jaskin were something special. Jaskin scored the EN to make it 3-1 Czechs, with Tomas getting the assist on the goal. Wasn't a gimme EN either, he had to battle like 4 Finns to get the pass off to Jaskin. Also rang one off the post. Man, this kid is physically a man among boys. As you all know, I watch Hertl in the Czech Extraliga against men, and was very excited to see him play against kids his own age. He just physically dominated, from amazing board play to a couple of sweet open-ice hits. And surprisingly his sub-par skating hasn't affected his play on the big international ice like I thought it might. But yeah, he's so offensively skilled, so strong and willing to throw the body, so smart in his own zone. I'm loving this kid and I love how amazing he's played since everyone around here said "who?" when he was drafted.

Hertl just toying with some of the Finnish D now. Great display of skill. #Sharks)
